Using JS with forms
Is there a way to get only part of an input value?
For example I have a file input and I need to only get the last part of it.
For example if they enter:
C:\Documents and Settings\Mike McDonald\My Documents\My Pictures\708d8b3face5f11b2acd82f5f6bbbd7e5295815.JPG
can I have the variable set to the thing after the last "\" mark. For instance in the above file place. could I have the variable set to 708d8b3face5f11b2acd82f5f6bbbd7e5295815.JPG
If so could you provide me with a code or a place to search for a code like this.
Thank You Very Much!

You could use the split function to return the last part of the string:
var path = document.forms.path.value;
var parts = path.split("\\");
var i = parts.length - 1;
<form action="" method="">
<input type="text" name="path"><br>
<input type="button" name="but" value="Split" onclick="parts();">
